Diagnostic Guidance supplement
This supplement reproduces the NICE recommendations from NICE Diagnostics Guidance 14.
- Atrial fibrillation and heart valve disease: self-monitoring coagulation status using point-of-care coagulometers (the CoaguChek XS system and the INRatio2 PT/INR monitor)
The production and printing of this Diagnostic Guidance supplement has been funded by Roche Diagnostics. Roche Diagnostics has reviewed this supplement for technical accuracy and regulatory compliance.
An analysis by Heneghan C et al (Oxford University) showed that self-monitoring and self-management of oral coagulation is a safe option for suitable patients of all ages.
